I did a search for the manual for that model and found a pdf file online that had instructions and pictures. It was still slightly different and hard to get off. I took out two screws and then held in two side "clips" and wrestled it off. I dont think the manual mentioned removing the screws,but instead mentioned two laches that I never found. Here is the link. Instructions are on page 30.

Is there a charge for your assistance? I was not sure and that is why I didn't continue.

Simplicity F3500-- how do I get the bottom off to change the belt?


To change the belt on the Simplicity F3500, unplug the vacuum and turn it upside down. There are two tabs (one on each side) behind the beater bar that hold the cover on the vacuum. Press these tabs inward and lift the bottom plate away from the unit.

Then remove the brushroll and the worn or broken belt from the pulley on the side of the brush roll and the drive shaft. Loop the new belt over the driveshaft and the brushroll. Replace the brushroll in the housing and turn it by hand. Make sure that the belt is seated on the driveshaft and pulley with no twists. Also check that all of the rotating parts will move.

Then put the bottom cover back on by aligning the back hinges and then pressing the plate down until both sides click.

For pictures of the cover removal process, look at page 15 in the manual. The direct link is http://www.simplicityvac.com/about-my-simplicity/manuals/FreedomManual_Update0803.pdf . Most Simplicity vacuum manuals are available at their support site: http://www.simplicityvac.com/about-my-simplicity/manuals/ .

I hope this helps.

Sounds like a broken belt. Unplug it flip it over and look at the bottom there is a cover over the bottom and the beater bars look for screws or levers to remove the cover then replace the belt. it goes around the beater bar and a drive shaft. check HERE for a manual and belts.

If you push inwards on each side of the light cover on top you can remove it. With the light cover removed remove the (2) access screws. Now you will be able lift of the entire top cover from the base. You will then see the belt and roller brush, remove the old belt and replace with a new one.

The brushes will not turn when on and cannot move them even manually


Drive belt has most likely broke and jammed inside the power head. Remove the bottom plate on the power head and replace the drive belt.

Belt is broken


Most upright vacuums will have 2 screws on the bottom of the vacuum. Remove both screws and snap off bottom cover to get inside of the head. Remove old / broken belt and slide agitator off from the head unit. Stretch new belt with both hands then place around the agitator and pulley coming out of the motor. Place the agitator back into place (there will be some resistance from the new belt, but that is common). Put back on the bottom cover and place back the screws. You should be all set then. Hopefully this helps.

Belt


You need to take the top cover off to get to motor shaft. Some had a couple of screws from the bottom, others had tabs, use a flat blade screwdriver to fit into the slots at the bottom edge of the top, pry out and up to pop the cover off.
